This post covers smoothie recipes with frozen fruit to make them quickly in a blender and have for any meal or make in the healthiest way possible. The smoothie is a perfect way to start your day and burn calories without eating other unhealthy foods.
This post will share some of the smoothie recipes that use frozen fruits, and also, the recipes that use fresh fruits shared here can easily be replaced with frozen ones.
Tips to make a smoothie with frozen fruit
The smoothie blending procedure is similar to the smoothies we usually make, but certain things need to be remembered when using frozen fruits.
First is to add a good amount of liquid to the smoothie ingredients if frozen fruits are used.
Also, thaw the frozen fruits for at least 20 – 30 minutes before blending if you like to have a smooth consistency, but it is optional when making the smoothie in a hurry.
If making the smoothie with frozen fruits, blend the ingredients on high speed with sufficient liquid to let the smoothie turn into a fine puree-like consistency.
Ingredients to make smoothies with frozen fruit
Fruits: Add any frozen fruit with other fruits or in solo form. When adding fruits, combining fresh and frozen fruits is also ideal if you combine more than one fruit.
Milk: Any liquid, such as milk that is almond milk or low-fat milk, or non-dairy milk, is an excellent choice to make a healthy smoothie.
Yogurt: This liquid is an excellent option to add protein to the smoothie but to make it a healthy, low-calorie smoothie, adding greek yogurt is the best way to add a liquid base.
Seeds: Seeds add fiber to the drink and use them while blending or as a topping.
Different seeds to use are chia seeds and flax seeds which boost health in many ways and help make a filling, healthy meal replacement smoothie.
Sweetener (optional): Adding sweeteners is optional but if you like to add any, go with either maple syrup or honey.
Honey has more calories than maple syrup, and if you prefer zero-calorie sweetener, add stevia and make the smoothie healthier.
Veggies: Along with frozen fruits, adding healthy veggies such as cucumber or avocado or green leaves such as spinach or kale makes a healthy smoothie suitable to add to healthy diets or to replace meals.
Suggestions to turn low-calorie smoothies into high calorie
The smoothies mentioned here are low-calorie smoothies that make a perfect meal replacement smoothie, help burn calories, and aid in weight loss.
The smoothie recipes can also be converted into high-calorie smoothies by replacing low calories liquids with high calories ones.
Replace greek yogurt with flavored yogurts or yogurt to increase the calories, or add whole milk instead of almond milk if you like to make the smoothie for kids.
Do not add white sugar or any sugar to smoothies as they contain high calories and are high in carbs which do nothing for the body but for gaining weight.
A healthy way of making a smoothie is to skip sugars and replace them with low-calorie sweeteners in little quantities, such as honey or maple syrup, or stevia(zero calories).
How to freeze fruits?
Berries: The fresh berries can be ziplocked and stored airtight for a couple of months.
Wash the berries, air dry them and freeze them either in the solo form in zip lock bags or combine a mix of berries in the same bag and store airtight.
If slicing the berries, wash them well before slicing and let them air dry well. Place the berries in layers on a pan and freeze for a few hours.
After freezing for 3-4 hours, gather all the berries, transfer them to a ziplock bag, and freeze them for months.
Bananas: Peel the banana, chop them into round slices, place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, and place them in the freezer for a few hours.
This way of freezing bananas in the first step lets the slices not stick to each other while freezing airtight.
Gather all the banana slices after freezing for 3-4 hours, place them in a ziplock bag, seal them tightly, store them in the freezer, and use them when required.
Mango: Follow the same procedure as mentioned for bananas.
Pineapple: Peel the pineapple, chop the fruit into cubes and store the pieces airtight sealed bag in the freezer.
If the fruit appears sticky, follow the procedure similar to freezing bananas or store them directly in air-tight bags in the freezer.
